Listening to music should be an intimate experience, but on a campus as large as Stanford’s, that often proves difficult. Danny Smith ’13 sought to fix this last spring, when he began the weekly music series Acoustic Jukebox as an independent project in the lounge of Enchanted Broccoli Forest (EBF), where he has lived for the past two years. Ever since, on Mondays at EBF, Jukebox has provided a haven for student musicians desiring a more intimate performance venue.
Stanford undergraduate Cady Jeanne Hine died of an undisclosed accident at her home in Palo Alto on April 1 at the age of 24. Hine’s close friends and classmates reflected on her impact on their lives, painting a picture of a wild, selectively honest, fiercely loyal and trusting friend.
Representatives of Stanford’s traditionally diverse co-op community have reacted as one to Stanford’s recent decision to revoke Chi Theta Chi’s (XOX) lease, voicing both criticism of the University decision as well as sympathy for XOX residents. The effects of direct University management on co-op life, however, are more muted than the outcry suggests.
While each co-op has a unique reputation, they all offer what the Office of Residential Education calls “an alternative to Stanford dorm life.” On campus, there are seven of them: Columbae, Synergy, Hammarskjöld, Terra, Chi Theta Chi (XOX), Kairos and Enchanted Broccoli Forest (EBF).
